What If I Don’t Have Enough Bone For a Dental Implant?

Learn how bone grafting can be avoided with mini dental implants from Dr. Amelia Aristodemo in the following video.

Bone grafting is often a concern for patients considering dental implants, particularly those worried about the procedure’s invasiveness and recovery time. With mini dental implants, the need for bone grafting is significantly reduced, if not entirely avoided, in many cases. This advantage is primarily due to the smaller size of mini dental implants, which allows them to be placed in areas of the jaw where bone density might be lower, without the need for grafting to build up the bone first.

Mini dental implants offer a way to make use of the existing bone structure, even when it may not be sufficient for traditional implants. This can be a major benefit for patients who are either not candidates for bone grafting due to medical reasons or those looking to avoid the additional time and cost associated with the grafting process.

To determine the suitability of mini dental implants without bone grafting, a thorough evaluation including a free consultation and a CT scan is essential. These steps help in assessing the quality and quantity of the jawbone available and planning the implant placement with precision.

If you’re considering mini dental implants and are concerned about the potential need for bone grafting, we encourage you to reach out for a consultation. Our team is equipped to assess your specific situation and provide you with detailed information on your options. With the help of modern diagnostic tools, we can confirm whether mini dental implants can be placed effectively, utilizing the bone you already have.
